NASA has launched a new probe

  1. May 27, 2006 #1
    :rofl: I've always been impatient when I hear NASA has launched a new probe for some mission. I hate having to wait years to see the mission unfold. But that is the reality of space.

    I've always wished that NASA had a giant Rail Gun, about a 100 miles long studded with reactors to generate electric current to fling a space craft with buster rockets and ion engines to speed up the travel time.

    Sigh! The pity of such a system has one critical flaw in it--AIMING! Yet I would wonder how long it would take to aim such a rocket launcher to eventually make such a concept possible.
